In like a Lion! Students treated to early March assembly on healthy living

The month of March came in like a Lion at Johnson Upper Elementary!

Students and staff were treated to a special visit from the Detroit Lions mascot Roary and linebacker Jahlani Tavai, thanks to the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s Building Healthy Communities program and the NFL’s Play 60 program.

The all-school assembly focused on healthy habits and educating students on how to grow up to be strong, healthy adults. The hour-long assembly engaged students in tips on healthy eating, daily exercise, a focus on how to be a leader and even included a dance-a-long with Roary the Detroit Lion and a Q&A session with Jahlani Tavai.
